More Lego Fun :) March 18, 2006

I previously posted about Bible stories being depicted with Legos. Well check out this aircraft carrier: Lego Aircraft Carrier.

I assembled one of those 3-D Puzzles (Neushwanstein Castle) when my leg was busted back in high school. It took a couple full days to get the whole thing together, so I can imagine the dedication it takes to put together such elaborate creations with Legos.

Enjoy.

(I ran across these aircraft carrier pictures while surfing www.digg.com. – very cool place to start a bored web surfing session. There are some cool links.)

Airbus worked with BMW to come up with the interior for the A350. I’ve got to get me one of the these! 🙂 The business-class ride in one of these planes will be pretty comfy according to the specs quoted in the article.

Check it out @ www.newlauches.com

Enjoy.

Text Away March 15, 2006

From Engadget Mobile today…

Text messaging bigger than Hollywood?:We find this one a little hard to believe, but according to at least one set of stats, text messaging is a bigger business than the movie industry. Revenues for texting in 2005 were about $75 billion, vs. $30 billion for Hollywood. Text is even bigger than the video game biz, which only brings in $40 billion. And, to top it off, texting has a 90% profit margin. Given that texting is bigger than the movie business, we assume it’s only a matter of time before it has its own stars and scandals. Oh, wait, it’s already got that, right Paris?
(reference:www.textually.org)

I am not sure of the numbers (presumably all worldwide figures), but if true, thats a cool figure for text messaging. Pulling down that much revenue with 90% margins, the cellphone companies seem to be making out like a bandit (yet Verizon insists on charging extra for every little thing! grr. And another thing, Verizon, if I pay $100 – $200 for a phone, I was all the bloody features it is supposed to come with!!!! …sorry, I am not pleased with Verizon right now) Somehow, knowing what cellphone companies are making off me isn’t going to deter me from texting my friends. It’s just too convenient. 🙂

The City is Mine March 11, 2006

D, RJ, RJ’s friend, and I went down to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Fran today (pictures forthcoming). D and I parked the car at a 1hr, metered spot, and as we were headed to meet RJ and his friend, we saw a spot open up in the free, 4hr parking area. D runs to get the car and I stand in the spot.

Just before D turns the corner, this old guy in drives up in a Jetta. I wave him off. He then rolls down his window down as yells, “You can’t save spots. You don’t own the city you know!” Just then D pulls up and parks in the spot.

For a moment I felt bad. Then I remembered: the city is mine.
